2020 Upper Decks Park Boards: DC Ply

With Upper Decks, SNOWBOARDER is providing our readers with insights, images, and other details culled from putting a handful of new terrain park performers through their paces for five days of jibbing, jumping, and carving amongst the freestyle features of Aspen Snowmass, Colorado. Providing the action and impression of the top park boards in stores this fall are former Forum pro and prolific video part protagonist, Eddie Wall and 2019 MS Superpark Standout Emma Crosby alongside the SNOWBOARDER Editorial Staff. This is SNOWBOARDER's take on the DC Ply.

DC’s pedigree of performance park boards is point proven by the professionals that ride them season-after-season: Torstein Horgmo, Sebbe De Buck, Iikka Backstrom, Justin Fronius. While these riders’ preferred terrain is as varied as their style, in every instance DC’s decks provide the platform for each to drop in and do what they do best. For nearly three decades, DC has created purpose-built boards to enhance on hill creativity no matter what and where you ride. The Ply is testament to this freestyle mentality: a skate-influenced, team-designed deck that takes all-mountain versatility and applies it to the park. In order to achieve a skate-like feel on snow, DC loaded the Ply with Lock & Load camber: traditional camber between the bindings paired with elongated contact points toward the tip and tail which hits the sweet spot between lots of pop and ample pressability. The snappy and responsive ride of The Ply is enhanced by DC’s Stratus Core, coupled with the smooth and consistent flex of Biax Fiberglass. The bottom line is, if it’s good enough for Torstein, it’s good enough for us.
